SURPRISE! Chicago crime rates drop sharply after concealed carry permits issued

poorrichardsnews:

Well, well, well! Chicago politicians try so hard to keep their crime rates up, but the Constitution keeps getting in the way.  After winning some key court battles, the newly armed citizens of Chicago have driven the violent city’s crime rate down dramatically.

from Washington Times:

Since Illinois started granting concealed carry permits this year, the number of robberies that have led to arrests in Chicago has declined 20 percent from last year, according to police department statistics. Reports of burglary and motor vehicle theft are down 20 percent and 26 percent, respectively. In the first quarter, the city’s homicide rate was at a 56-year low.

“It isn’t any coincidence crime rates started to go down when concealed carry was permitted. Just the idea that the criminals don’t know who’s armed and who isn’t has a deterrence effect,” said Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association. “The police department hasn’t changed a single tactic — they haven’t announced a shift in policy or of course — and yet you have these incredible numbers.”

As of July 29 the state had 83,183 applications for concealed carry and had issued 68,549 licenses. By the end of the year, Mr. Pearson estimates, 100,000 Illinois citizens will be packing.

America doesn’t need militarized police; it needs an armed citizenry.

America the land where booze is more regulated than guns

It’s not though?

Where do you live where you have to not be a felon, pass a background check, and (in some states) wait 3 days to buy a beer?

I smell the distinct smell of cheap narrative pushing coming off of OP. Try again, OP. I know you can do better than this.

Just curious why the people in charge of reporting the news to us are so fucking retarded
After they published that, they then changed it a little while later to “An AK-47-type assault revolver with high-capacity magazines”
Then they finally fixed it to just an Ak-47 and a revolver
Add this to the list of ghost guns and 30 magazine clips, shoulder things that go up, the Everytown poster, the whole Senator Leeland Yee debacle, and how media like CNN tried to ignore it, the criminals behind “Mayors against illegal guns,” and so on and so on
Or the multiple debunked gun control myths people still push such as:
74 School shootings since Sandy HookRace of mass shooters being overwhelmingly “white”A womans vagina being more regulated than gunsA whole bunch of various completely false “stats” by anti gun communities

Anonymous asked: Why do you love your guns?

Is this a serious question? You really have to ask that?

I don’t “love” my guns, or any guns. They are an inanimate object just is like any other tool. 

I like them because of the mechanical and ergonomic ingenuity that goes into them. It’s amazing to see a mechanical device that functions flawlessly nearly all the time. They are a wonder of engineering.

I also like them because they allow me to defend my life, my family’s life, and my property without sacrificing portability or ease of mind. Our founders had the right idea when they made sure the people could defend themselves.

So, anon, I’m going to have to call you out on your attempt at a “gotcha” questions and remind you to do better next time. Good day. :)

Gun Ownership Fact and Fiction

Statement: “Guns = oppression”

Fiction: Guns in the hands of an informed populace trained in gun safety = oppression.

Fact: Guns in the hands of the government, not the citizens = oppression.

Super Fact: Guns in the hands of an informed populace trained in gun safety = power against an oppressive government.

So much hate, and anger on the anti gun side.  
It makes me very thankful that they hate guns.


If by “no jury” he means “every jury”, then yes, he is absolutely correct.

You are advocating for someone to assault someone with a gun.  You will get killed doing that.

This idiot lost me at “Military style assault rifle”Maybe he should learn a little something about what he’s spewing off about.Also, can you imagine somebody this ready to commit violence having a gun? Thank God he’s a gun control nut.
